Use this debate rubric for any class! Easy to understand and follow yet holds true to the basics of debate. I use it for debates in my Anatomy class (i.e. - weight loss supplements, plastic surgery, stem cell research, etc.). Rubric is general and can fit nearly any subject matter. Let students prepare as long or little as you'd like. Great as an opener to material or a closing to see what they've learned. Encourages research. Students love to argue, let them do it in your class for a grade!
